May 17, 2015

2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe

Take the jump for a photographic recap of my recent 500-mile road trip to Arizona and back in our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe.

I was 90 minutes into the drive before the sun considered showing its face, passing through Banning, Calif., when there was finally enough light to start shooting photos.

The name of this liquor store and smoke shop was ironic, so it deserved mention.

Reminded me of those black snake fireworks I used to light as a kid.

General Patton Museum at Chiriaco Summit, California. The big rigs parked out front led me to believe it was closed this early in the day. The "Hours of Operation" sign confirmed it.

The Arizona border was my goal. So I turned around in Ehrenberg, Ariz., neighbor city to Blythe, Calif., on the other side of the Colorado River.

Back in Blythe at the Steaks 'n Cakes restaurant. I recommend the shakes.

I couldn't decide whether these patches of headless palm trees along I-10 belonged in a nuclear fallout documentary or an Ansel Adams print.

After driving the 550-horsepower F-Type R like a granny for 408 miles, I was out of gas. Well, the car said it had another 12 miles in the tank but that was close enough to empty for me.

March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, California. It's a neat detour if you have the time and planes are your thing.

Our F-Type is cool. I think these F-Types are cooler: F-84, F-86 and more.

After 500 miles and 10.5 hours, I was back home. Or at a place nearby that I would like to call home one day.
